Greetings to our Referring Veterinarians

I am excited to join the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine team as the new Director of Hospital Operations, following in the footsteps of Dr. Tom Johnson, who has retired (yet again). I have been warmly welcomed by many of the IVMA veterinarians already, and am looking forward to meeting more of you as we work toward furthering animal and public health together.

I Can See Clearly Now, the Cataract is Gone

Iowa State University is excited to announce that we recently purchased the most advanced technology for cataract removal available. 

The Stellaris Elite phacoemulsification machine is at the top of its class for human and veterinary cataract surgery. It is best known for stabilizing intraocular pressure during surgery, creating a highly responsive and controlled surgical environment and improving lens removal efficiency. This leads to a faster, safer surgery and decreases complications.   

Introducing Sarahbeth Barlas

June 2018

Hi everyone! My name is Sarahbeth Barlas, and I grew up in Canton, Michigan, on that perfect border between suburbia and the back country roads. I attended Lyman Briggs College at Michigan State University where I completed a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science with a concentration in companion and exotic animal management and a specialization in agriculture and natural resources biotechnology. 

Plan your fourth year wisely

June 2018

The past month of rotations has flown by! I have completed two rotations, started my VetPrep program, and have registered for the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) and with the Iowa Board of Veterinary Medicine.

So far, my rotations have provided a great opportunity to get to know classmates that I previously haven’t spent much time with. Now that everyone is closing in on a career path, it has been great to create a network of species experts that I will be able to refer to in the future.
